Something was set in motion A realness that you inspired But what do you do with this emotion When you feel disappointed, saddened and tired So I was sick of learning the hard way You think I’d know better by now Tried to change myself for better But look what it’s left us without There’s a sinking feeling I don’t want to face Like something colder has come to take your place I lost my friend to love I lost my friend to love So much room for doubt in a heart But don’t waste you time doubting mine I wish I had a white flag for this battle field I wish I could ease, I wish I could please your mind Cause there’s a sinking feeling I don’t want to face Like something colder has come to take your place I lost my friend to love I lost my friend to love

You can’t kiss her Cause her heart is with another She’s your romantic muse in every way but your lover And I’ll gamble what I got Just so I get to see that love light in that low light The light in your eyes Most things they fade out Not like I fade into you But If I fail you, I fail my passion too And I wish I could know, what draws me to you Cause then I could take it Drown it in the river blue You can’t kiss her Cause your heart is with another But you’re my Romantic muse in every way but my lover And I just miss you darlin', some things will never really change And I still stand up for you Yes some things will never change And I’ll gamble what I got I’ll gamble what I got I’ll gamble what I got

Home 04:24
Home now You want a bear for your cave Well I've already got one And we’ve got it all nestled in It’s too late too little Blue boy and your fiddle Your love it did jump over the moon for me Yeah, we tried and we lost it No explaining what it cost us It just is what it is now Stone cold Walk like a ghost through this town You and slumber are foes You restless young soul It’s too late too little Blue boy and your fiddle My love it did jump over the moon for you Yeah, we tried and we lost it No explaining what it cost us It just is what it is now It just is what it is now It just is what it is now It’s too late Oh love I just can’t let you go It’s too late I want you to hurt like I do It’s too late Oh, how I played out like the fool It’s too late It’s too late…..

Spite 02:16
Oh, you don’t know How vacancy stings, so cruel though disguised Always a fight One day I’m building up this dam The next it’s broken down by spite I want the light I’m so sick of sadness I wanna leave this behind Make this right Should, have taken note Closed my eyes to all these signs, could have saved heart ache and time Illusion so blind You’re still chasing some old dream No one fit but silver screen I want the light I’m so sick of sadness I wanna leave this behind Make this right
5.
You hold a torch for your own torture But I wish you held a torch for me Coming around and seeing you down It’s hard to watch your misery Something fine in those colours I saw behind my eyes But your unrest leaves you lonely at best It’s hard to know if this ever really touched you Well I won’t be your Miss Nightingale Won’t bellow wind into your sail Your eyes love are so new And this old soul can’t change you So Peter run Peter run Peter run

Calm Ways 02:49
Cry out loud, sing your song Go ahead, get it all out cause it’s the last time round You made me scream, you made me shout You had such silent brutal ways Of letting things out Calm ways of breaking my heart It’s a cold day here today Your praise was great, when I complied with you Or was something only I could recognize in you Walk away, say goodbye You’ve taken away All the brightest stars in my sky Calm ways of breaking my heart It’s a cold day here today It’s a cold day here today
